Reviewed 11 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We enjoyed a too brief stay in this converted cognac distilliary. Friendly hosts, ample clean and well furnished accomodation. Jacky was good to deal with. Enjoyed the local Cognac at Guillome Painturaud.
Travelled with grown up son who will return with friends!

Management response:

Thank you for your Kind words and we are pleased that you enjoyed your brief stay. Hope the rest of your stay in France went well and [perhaps we will see you again sometime
